Albums: Labyrinth | Eternal Stream
 
Structured like an opera, the debut album of the gothic atmospheric metal band Transcendence is an interesting mix between soprano vocals, heavy guitar riffs, symphonic arrangements, and acoustic instruments. For listeners who wish to be drawn beyond the categorized scene.


Music industry’s comments:

I’m blown away by the talent and ability this band has to create a depressive atmosphere.
-Worm Gear

This band pushed the tired gothic/folk metal sound just that bit further and the result is truly refreshing.
-Chronicles of chaos

Overall, Eternal Stream is a very impressive album, and TRANSCENDENCE is unlike any other band today.
-Metal Trax


Our A&R comments:

This band has created an impressive concept, from their lyrics to their music, from their drawings to the story of the character they created. Very original, and quite hard to categorize… And that’s what I like.
